Study to Show Yourself Approved

Study to Show Yourself Approved

by Sister Jamie

As I came into this walk, I realized how passive I had been when learning about my Heavenly Father.  I had allowed people to tell me what was in the Scriptures instead of reading the Word for myself.  I needed know what the Father had written in it for me.  The Father baraked me with a passion to read and understand His Word that I cannot explain.  He led me to be intentional with my studies.

2 Timothy 2:15 KJV

Study to shew thyself approved unto Elohim, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

As I started to read the Word more intentionally, I was looking for tools to hold me accountable.  I was looking for a way to measure my progress as I was reading.  At one point, someone had asked me if I had read the whole Bible.  The answer to that was no.  I had read many scriptures, chapters, and even full books over the years, but I could not answer someone to say whether I had read the whole Bible or not.  

So I started looking for a tool that would help me stay on track to make sure I knew what was in the Scriptures.  I was looking for a tool that would ensure that I didn’t overlook certain books and hold me accountable.  I wanted to be able to say I had read the entire Bible many times over some day.  This is one of the tools I found.

Scripture Reading Checklist

The Scripture Reading Checklist, pictured below, is the tool I found and tweaked to meet this need.  I loved coloring as a child, so I have a nice set of colored pencils and I use them to color each chapter as I finish it.  

You can color in the squares, mark them with an X or a checkmark.  Any way that works for you.

     

I also write down verses or chapters that I want to remember on this sheet as well in the margins.

How do I use this tool?

This tool is a PDF that can be printed out.  It works best when you print “2-sided” on a single sheet of paper.  Then you can fold it like a book. Fold it on the dotted line pictured below.  You will also see the front and back illustrated.  I keep it in my Bible as a bookmark to mark where I am reading.
